In Response To: Re: Free Negro vs. Mullato ()
Well, whether Mulatto, Octaroon, Quadroon, or Griffe..we know African blood was there or thought to be there..or known to be there regardless of whether it showed in the person's appearance..That is, there could be a very white looking mixed African and white and to be called Mulatto or whatever could be because the ancestry was known by the census taker..
